Before putting your house on the market, making sure it’s in tip-top shape is a must. It may be impossible to sort everything, but there are some cost-effective jobs to and add value and make your property more appealing. The last thing you want is a buyer haggling with the price over something you could have fixed. Here are five ideas that will save the pennies, but add the pounds.
- A fresh coat of paint
It’s amazing what a lick of paint can do. Keeping things neutral for the buyer and covering over stains and marks on the walls makes your home much more inviting.
- Clean tiles
Discoloured tiles look nasty, and can make a bathroom or kitchen tired and in need of renovating. However, with an intense steam clean and a grout pen, they can look as good as new without spending thousands!
- Redo sealant
Mouldy sealant around baths or sinks could be enough to put a buyer off. By removing the old and then re-sealing, you’ll give your room a fresher and much cleaner feel.
- Change handles
Installing a brand new kitchen is not an option for many. Investing in new handles on cupboard doors, however, could give your existing cupboards a much-needed facelift.
- Curb appeal
Tidying up the front of your home, adding flowering plants and installing a new front door, if yours is tired, will all work wonders. Don’t forget, when selling, the outside of your property is the first thing a buyer will see, so make sure to make an excellent first impression.
